Stacy Klausing and Hugh Hoagland have been named voting representatives to the Technical Committee on Flash Fire Protective Garments, NFPA Standard 2112.
Hugh was a founding member of the standard in 1999 and returns to represent ArcWear Textile Testing on the committee.
NFPA 2112 is essential for manufacturers and certifying agencies. This standard protects workers from flash fire exposure and injury by specifying test methods and performance requirements for flame-resistant fabric and garments.
The criteria in NFPA 2112 cover design, construction, evaluation, and certification of flame-resistant garments for use by industrial personnel. The intent is to ensure that products put on the market do not contribute to burn injury, provide a degree of protection to the wearer, and reduce the severity of burn injuries resulting from short-duration thermal exposures.
ArcWear is a full service testing group for NFPA 2112, ASTM F1506 and ASTM F1891 and an ISO 17025 A2LA accredited lab. Our partnering agreement with Kinectrics High Current Lab will now allow companies to test flash fire and arc flash with full service.
